Anger Management

Anger is a natural reaction to frustration in life. That being said, anger can be problematic if it is uncontrolled, overwhelming, and destructive. People who find themselves struggling with these powerful emotions may experience hindrances to their daily functioning. Fortunately, these intense emotions can be better regulated with anger management counseling. Clarity Clinic utilizes a variety of anger management techniques to reduce both raw emotional reactions as well as troublesome aggressive responses of self-expression.

Expressing Anger

Anger is a completely normal reaction to what we perceive as threats which allows us to defend ourselves when we are under “attack. Anger problems arise when we start to physically or verbally abuse or lash out at every irritating situation. The average person uses both unconscious and conscious practices to process feelings of anger with the three main approaches being expressing, suppressing, and calming.

Expressing anger in a firm yet empathetic way is the healthiest way to express your emotions. The priority is expressing your feelings with respect to others and yourself, and without hurting others.

The Role of Anger Management in Mental Health

Effective anger management is an essential component of mental and emotional well-being. Unresolved anger can contribute to stress, anxiety, depression, and strained relationships. Our Anger Management treatment goes beyond simply suppressing anger; it focuses on teaching you healthy ways to express and manage your emotions. By addressing anger issues, you can enhance your overall mental health and pave the way for healthier interpersonal connections.

How Do I Know If I Need Anger Management Counseling?

If you believe that your feelings of anger are starting to get out of control and are having a negative impact on your relationships, work, or other important areas of life, anger management counseling could be a productive step toward managing your emotions more healthily. Anger management helps you recognize frustrations early and resolve them in a way that allows you to express your needs — and keeps you calm and in control. Anger management therapy can help you control your reactions to people or things that trigger angry feelings.

Some signs that you need help controlling your anger include:

  • Regularly feeling that you have to hold in your anger
  • Persistent negative thinking and focusing on negative experiences
  • Constant feelings of irritation, impatience, and hostility
  • Frequent arguments with others that escalate frustrations
  • Physical violence, such as hitting your partner or children or starting fights
  • Threats of violence against people or property
  • Out-of-control or frightening behavior, such as breaking things or driving recklessly
  • Avoiding situations because of anxiety or depression about anger outbursts
